Best Dundee Florida Wildlife Control
Dundee, FL, may be the happiest place on earth, but that doesn’t stop nuisance Florida wildlife from moving to the area. Bats, for example, are prevalent. These pests carry rabies and easily break into attics, one of their favorite places to roost. Surprisingly, they only need a gap less than half an inch wide to get in. As their droppings pile up, so do histoplasmosis spores that can lead to lung infections. Bat waste also stains exterior walls at entry points.
Our focus is on removing the animal from your home in the most humane and safe way possible. We want to make sure your family is safe. We also make sure the animal is treated humanely and removed properly, abiding by the laws of Dundee Florida in dealing with household pests.
This is where our expert staff comes in. We’ve removed every conceivable kind of animal from Florida homes. We handle snakes, rats, mice, raccoons, birds and armadillos. Coastal Wildlife Removal of Orlando is your best choice in Dundee wildlife removal.

Identify Areas of Skunk Damage
When you think about where poisonous snakes live, you might picture tropical climates or desert ranges throughout the country. Not many people would associate seemingly innocent forests and wooded areas in Indiana as homes to venomous snakes. But the truth is, out of the 39 species of snake found in Indiana, there are 4 species that are poisonous. Continue reading to learn which ones!
The Water Moccasin Agkistrodon piscivorus
Also known as Eastern Cottonmouths, Water Moccasins are a poisonous subspecies of pitviper that can deliver a painful and potentially deadly bite. Bites are treated with a serum called CroFab anti-venom. Although usually not fatal, their cytotoxic venom can cause severe scarring, tissue deterioration, and possible amputation. They are the only species of semiaquatic vipers in the world, usually living in or near marches, slow-moving streams, and lake areas. Most Cottonmouths live in warmer regions, so it is unlikely to ever spot one in the north. But there is a small population known to exist near the southern border of Indiana. Although their patterns often get them confused for common water snakes, you can tell a Water Moccasin apart because it displays a distinguishable inner white mouth when agitated or annoyed.
The Timber Rattlesnake Crotalus horridus
Another endangered venomous pitviper species, the Timber Rattlesnake is often found living on dry deciduous forests and hillsides surrounding rugged terrain. Unfortunately for Hoosiers, the Timber Rattlesnake is among the most dangerous in the country. This is because they are large in size, extremely venomous, and have long fangs. Its venom is neurotoxic, hemorrhagic, and proteolytic.

Rattlesnakes are one of four poisonous snakes that inhabit the United States. There are several different varieties of rattle snake that can be found across all of the contiguous 48 states of the United States: the Prairie Rattlesnake, the Eastern Diamondback, the Timber Rattlesnake, and the Western Diamondback. Some of the rattlesnake species are comparably small, while other species can grow as long as 8 feet. The Diamondback Rattlesnake, located in western states, is responsible for more snake bite-related deaths in the U.S. than any other snake.
The venom of a rattlesnake is hemotoxic, which means that it causes damage to tissues, especially tissues of the circulatory system. The venom also contains neurotoxic compounds that interfere with the function of the nervous system. Interestingly, the venom of a juvenile rattlesnake actually contains a higher concentration of neurotoxins than that of a mature adult snake.
If you get bitten by a snake, and you don't know what kind of snake it was, you should inspect the bite wound. If there are two visible fang marks at the site of the bite, the snake was poisonous. There will also be a significant amount of pain and inflammation at the site of the bite wound. You may also feel nauseated and weak, or have a strange rubber-like taste in your mouth.
If you need to move to call or get help, make sure to wait for about twenty minutes after the bite occurred in order to slow the flow of venom through your veins as much as possible. If you know that it is going to be a long time, say several hours, before help can reach you, lie still with the bitten area lower than your heart. It would also be good to use a coat or blanket to cover yourself up and preserve your body heat.
The best choice is to avoid getting bitten in the first place. If you spend a lot of time outside, hiking, biking, etc., it is wise to learn about the types of poisonous snakes that you could encounter, their habits and areas where they prefer to live. Because snakes are cold blooded, they are most active when the weather is warm, so be extra cautious of snakes in warm weather. Rattle snakes have their built-in alert system when they feel threatened, they rattle their tales, so take heed and move away from an aggravated rattlesnake as quickly and quietly as possible to avoid getting bitten.

Late this afternoon, when I went out to walk our puppy one of the neighbors came over to tell me this news... Apparently a bobcat has been sited within our development around one of our retention ponds, at the rear of several neighbors gardens.
The Florida Bobcat (Lynx rufus floridanus) is known to be a warm-blooded, solitary, and territorial predator mammal. Although not as big as the Florida Panther the bobcat is usually around the size of a medium-sized dog. The bobcat is dark brown with black spots and striped bars which are most visible along their sides and legs. The backs of their ears are white with a black out line, their tails shorter having a white tip. Their under parts are also generally white with their fur being short, soft and dense. It should be noted that the bobcat has razor sharp teeth and retractable claws just like the house cats.
So what do you do if you see one...
According to the Florida Wildlife Commission they should be left well alone as they have an unpredictable disposition... remember those razor sharp teeth and retractable claws mentioned earlier?
Refer the animal to your local county Animal Control Services Department rather than risk incident.
As we have said previously, as 'man' encroaches on these animals lands, we are likely to hear of more incidents with Florida's carnivores.
